Subject [jira] [Commented] (LANG-900) New RandomUtils class
Date Sat, 11 Jan 2014 13:38:51 GMT


Benedikt Ritter commented on LANG-900:

Very nice patch. I'm currently wondering if it may make sense to incorporate {{org.apache.commons.lang3.Range}}
as possible parameter for the nextXxx Methods that take a range. The problem may be, that
the Range class uses inclusive bounds and the nextXxx methods take in inclusive lower and
and exclusive upper bound. WDYT?
